Nasturtium and Clover


Herbs are pretty terrific in fragrances. An excellent example, and one of my all-time favourite fragrances, is Jo Malone Lime Basil & Mandarin. I use the Body Oil through winter on my legs and arms to fight dry skin and the deliciously subtle citrus-herbal waft throughout the day always feels like a gift of summer sunshine. And in summer, it’s the perfect scent to beat the heat and feel cool.
 There are five fragrances in the 2016 Limited Edition Herb Garden Collection from Jo Malone, which were created by perfumer Anne Flipo, who is known for her simplistic natural style. Flipo says in Harper’s Bazaar Singapore, “I wanted these fragrances to be sophisticated… I used many high quality natural ingredients and I wanted…those ingredients…to shine with absolute clarity. This type of construction means that they can be layered with one another to change the nuance of the scent and create something individual.”
Nasturtium and Clover
Green clover with the sweetness of new-mown lawn mixes with peppery green rocket (arugula) and opens on top of sparkling lemon, becoming after a few minutes a perfectly balanced waft of crisp freshness and sweet warmth. Then nasturtium with its distinctive sour vegetal scent blooms in the heart, wrapped with tendrils of sweet jasmine. In the base, vetiver creates a smooth sueded effect around what has become a soft green floral/herbal accord. Nasturtium and Clover is an unexpected herbal pairing, and it is absolutely sophisticated, absolutely addictive.
Try layering Nasturtium and Clover with Lavender and Coriander, another scent listed on the Decant Store from the Herb Garden Collection.
